From there on Steve tries to form a relationship with Nathaniel, a person who is much more to him than just a homeless musician. Nathaniel suffers from schizophrenia. Throughout the film, Steve learns how difficult it is to communicate with Nathaniel.

Communication is needed when having a conversation with people.
To cope with his depression, lack of self-worth, and lack of motivation in life, the narrator created a second identity who was his inner angst and desires. I will analyze the portrayal of this disorder in accordance to the diagnostic criteria, as well as the emotional journey which influenced the narrator. Tyler Durden is the main character, except he loses conscience awareness of this as he progresses through his journey in becoming the Tyler Durden he wishes himself to be. The starting point in which he begins to lose his own identity is when he becomes addicted to these group therapy sessions. His doctor would not prescribe him any medication for his insomnia, despite his pleas of being in so much pain and suffering; the doctor told him there was worse suffering and he should go check out the men in the testicular cancer group.
Likewise, the causes of the problem make the illness all the more relatable to Leper’s character. ABC regards, “A stressful event,” to be a cause of the development of psychosis.

The definition of psychoanalysis is so vast, that almost any uneasiness of the human soul can be hidden behind it. The fact that George Orwell’s real name was Eric Arthur Blair can say a lot about the author’s personality. Eric Blair wanted to publish in an anonymous manner, first of all because he felt that the stories about his life would disturb his parents, and the second thing is that, as he confessed to his friend, Sir Richard Rees (editor at “The Adelphi”, for whom he worked), he has a weird fear, namely he was afraid that if his real name got published, an enemy could put a spell on him. If we read more about his life, we see a relatively short life (he lived for only 47 years) marked by uneasiness, lack of material needs and disease. Another paradox is the fact that, even though he fought on the communists’ side during the Spanish Civil War, he wrote “Animal Farm” and “1984”, which can be regarded as a lucid analysis again the communist tyranny, knowing the year when it was written (1948), or as a premonition about what would mean the communist dictatorship in the countries that would be behind the Iron Curtain.
One side is his innocence translated to his testimony while the other side is his guilt which is seen in his diary. Because Steve wrestles with his degree of guilt in the crime, his voice in his private journal doesn’t match his public testimony. Steve Harmon, the defendant, is faced with an internal conflict that questions his self-identity. In his diary, he wonders what people think of him, seeking the truth of his innocence. As seen in an entry he attempts to defend himself: “What did I do?

I’ve watched the movie Shutter Island. The movie begins on a boat, on the way to an Island on the east coast of the USA called Shutter Island, surrounded by steep cliffs, where they keep criminals with various mental problems. Leonardo plays the role of Teddy Daniels on a mission to the Island where the entire movie takes place, to investigate a mysterious case with his new partner Chuck Aule. The case is about an inmate called Rachel Solando who just disappeared from her cell. As the storm gets worse Teddy starts to realize something uncanny about the doctor’s behavior, it was almost like they refused to share their information.
It also helps to determine how we handle situations such as stress, how we relate to others and how we make decisions. Considering mental health issues are so prominent in our day to day lives, why is it that they’re so vastly misapprehended? Mental disorders are commonly misconceived as Wyatt Fisher, a Colorado-based licensed psychologist implied in an interview with The Cheat Sheet; “People tend to view mental illness as a sign of weakness that people should just be able to ‘get over’, and many view it as a title given to those who are just ‘crazy’”. At one point mental health was a subject that no one would dare talk about; as far as everyone was concerned, ‘if you are physically fit nothing else matters’. In the past it was even looked at and considered as a ‘crime’ and ‘self inflicted’.
Introduction After a mass shooting, America frantically searches for the cause of the sudden and violent event. Society has repeatedly blamed the mentally ill, despite the fact that there is little correlation between violence and mental illness.
